VeloCity Bicycle Cooperative is hosting a holiday bash from 6 p.m. to 10 p.m. Friday featuring light fare, beverages, music, art and more.
The party closes out the nonprofit’s holiday kids bike drive and organizers are still seeking donations.
“A few of the bikes will go to the Alexandria police and the others will go to St. Rita’s,” VeloCity co-founder Christian Myers said. “We’re looking still looking for kids bike donations and donations of the monetary kind. Those are especially important because we need to pay to fix up the donated bikes.”
Those who donate bikes to the drive are promised VIP treatment at the holiday party, which will include a fundraising sale of bike-inspired artwork, door prizes and, well, plenty of holiday cheer.
Refreshments will be provided by Planet Wine, St. Elmo’s Coffee Pub, Pork Barrel BBQ, The Happy Tart and more.
“It’s going to be fun,” Myers said. “It’s all local, all Del Ray.”
VeloCity Bicycle Cooperative educates community members about bike maintenance, safety and other issues. It moved from Old Town to its current location at 2111 Mt. Vernon Ave. in February.
